French mayor, Francois Vayrou, has vowed to to arm all police officers in France in order to allow them to effectively deal with the threat of terrorism.

As France remains gripped in an ongoing state of emergency, Francois Vayrou, the mayor of the city of Pau declared, “Our weapons against incivility, such as the Taser or the flash-ball, are obviously worthless in stopping a vehicle,” in reference to the terror attack in Nice. reports:

No one can deny the connection between the militarization of police in the U.S. and the number of citizens killed at their hands. While arming the police may appear to be the next step in the war against terror, the reality is that the bulk of new weapons of war handed to local French police will lead to the same results America has already uncovered.
